About Dr. Benjamin Gelfant

Dr. Benjamin Gelfant always wanted to combine his interests in both the arts and science in his profession. For Dr. Glefant, plastic surgery allows him to combine these disciplines in a deeply satisfying and profoundly stimulating way, and continues to do so even after decades of practice.

Sometimes in the rush to diagnosis and begin treatment, the interpersonal connection between a doctor and patient can be lost. Dr. Gelfant ensures each of his patients experiences a personal encounter because he knows its the basis of a relationship of trust and understanding. Also, for Dr. Gelfant, that personal connection is one of the great pleasures of practicing medicine.

Putting a difficult diagnosis together with a treatment plan that ultimately works is an extraordinary experience for both the patient and doctor. Back when Dr Gelfant was fresh out his internship and doing general practice in a small town, he made a complex diagnosis of both diabetes and hyperthyroidism for a man who had been told repeatedly that his uncontrolled diabetes was his fault. Dr. Gelfant got him to see a specialist, they treated his thyroid, his diabetes settled down (he was having repeated, life threatening, hypoglycemic episodes) and his life was immeasurably improved.

Dr. Gelfant often finds the same kind of profound satisfaction in his plastic surgery practice. Sometimes there are complex revisions of prior procedures and sometimes it comes from something as simple as removing a skin cancer under local anesthetic.

Dr. Gelfant was recently recognized as an IDEAL IMPLANT Preferred Surgeon due to his extensive expertise working with IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants, the latest technology in breast augmentation. With a unique structure surrounding these saline-filled implants, women can achieve beautiful results with zero risk of silent rupture. Dr. Gelfant uses the IDEAL IMPLANT to help women look and feel their best. With the IDEAL IMPLANT, no expensive MRIs are needed, and they come with a lower risk of both capsule contracture and ruptures when compared to other implants.
